Continuous improvement is the ongoing improvement of products, services, or processes in a business. Continuous improvement initiatives could mean focusing on increasing efficiency by creating the right tools to connect different systems together, or automating business processes to save time.
For example, OSF HealthCare committed to continuous improvement across a network of 7 acute care and 4 critical access facilities, 75 OSF Medical Group locations, 193 clinical departments, and two colleges of nursing.
OSF HealthCare had already deployed the Six Sigma process improvement methodology, but formed a Performance Improvement division solely focused on facilitating priorities and guidance for strategic transformation. This division conducts performance monitoring and reporting and assists in the identification of performance management opportunities.
To track and manage cost-saving projects, OSF HealthCare turned to a suite of apps built on the Quickbase platform. The results are greater collaboration across teams, more efficient delivery of new programs, and greater speed to value.
